I was just wondering how many of you all have had one of these 96 4.6 litre and have had numerous problems with it. My problems started last summer when my suspension started giving me problems. I busted ball joint and after everyones recomendation I replaced virtually everthing up there from the ball joints to the control arm bushings, struts and even the coils were cracked . That put me back about $1200, then another problem. The A/C went out so I had to rebuild that, cost about $400. After that the battery and Alternator went out, that was another $300. Next was the heater core, cost with labor $500. Now the fuel pump is out, it is going to cost $300 w/labor, and my rack and pinion is leaking cost with labor $800. Now I know I am probably stupid to keep putting money into this piece of s**t car, but I wont even get ($)what I have put in it. Have any of you all ever had problems like this before with your bird. Should I sell it and take a loss, in case anything else happens next. It has 155,000 mainly highway miles. I dont know what to do keep it or sell and take the loss of money I have in it.
